Reducing security risks from open source software

Reg Reader Studies It's that time of the month again when we ask you, our beloved, tech-savvy readership to give us your input on a topic of IT import.

This time around, the lads at Reg Reader Studies have out-snapped themselves in the title department with the scintillating "Responsibility and accountability in the deployment of mobile technology", but rest assured that the survey itself promises to deliver some rather more illuminating material.

In summary, this dipping of the toe into the waters lapping at the base of the IT barometer "looks at the responsibilities for both user and organisation from the deployment of wirelessly connected mobile devices". Questions range from "What best describes your current experiences of using laptops with wireless or cellular connections?" to "Do you personally have a password or PIN on the mobile devices you use for work?" via "What best characterises the attitude of mobile users in your organisation to security?".

You'll also be asked, as is the local custom, to provide some background detail on your organisation. Be warned: this section contains - as one possible response to the question "How many employees are there in the organisation you work for?" - the magnificent option "0-49". Yup, we've all worked for one of those zero employee outfits at one time or another.

As ever, the survey is entirely anonymous, so no need to provide personal details or email addy. We reckon it'll take about 10 minutes of your valuable time, and we thank you in advance of your participation right here. ®
